This project encouraged students to reflect and visually represent an important personal experience in their lives, some of the students have included an artist statement along with their painting.  

I named the picture “Blossom Tree” because it is a part of my story. 

 

This reminds me of the times where my family from different places could be with me. 

 

Purple is my favorite color and I like to blend colors to make it purple which my friend gave me the idea. 

 

My artwork is about the beach. The beach was beautiful. When you go to the beach, it makes you feel relaxed.

My canvas shows two colours that I like. It gives information about my favourite day. A bike ride at a movie night with my family! It was so much fun! It also shows a lot of stuff I saw during that time.

I hope for my viewers to get different ideas on what the painting is or what the painting is supposed to be. Some people thought my painting was a whirlpool or a tornado. You can see an eye in the middle of the art piece. My dream has led to the development of this art piece. It wasn’t what I expected but I still really love it! Lots of colors were used. I didn’t want to use brown in my art piece but it came out really good. I really loved the light bulb in my art piece. It represented thoughts.

The beach ocean was beautiful, it was sparkly, clean, and Shining. I loved the view often. Then we ate strawberries, cherries and oranges. Then we played some games and went home. The floaties on the canvas is when we went to the ocean and one of them went away and we tried to catch it but it was moving too because of the wind and it took us a while to catch it until the wind stops blowing and we finally caught it.

I was inspired by a frog I saw in a forest.

It represents my first time at a movie theatre. It also represents how I was feeling at the movie theatres. I felt happy and a little shy.

I would say that it is not drawing over the lines.

The first time they looked at my art piece they thought it was a family on the beach and they were right. I made a beach and I want to make a group like the group of seven and I want to go on an adventure and draw what I see.The process was me first using pencil then over it sharpe then colored it.
I made this art project to show everybody who looks at my art will understand how much I like to play basketball. I want everybody to understand that basketball can be a good game.

I want people to know that my art is based on current events like corona/covid with the curtains on the sides. I chose this because my vacation to Cuba was canceled. The colours were just colours I made with the paint I had.
I hope my viewers like my artwork and appreciate my time put into that canvas.

My story isn’t that complicated or detailed because it’s just like a short story of my life. It includes my religion, (Muslim) and other things like the sports that I like. I do dance lessons and the name of the dance I do is lyrical x contemporary but I just put lyrical because it’s mostly lyrical anyway, regardless of that I also put the town I was born in Iran (Tehran). I follow Islam as well as my family so I’m Muslim and that’s why I put Islam on the canvas.

The Painting of Cool and Warm Colours.

This is a painting of a galaxy background with warm colours. I really liked how the colours blend in together. It reminds me of the ocean and the sunset.

It also reminds me of that time when me and my family went to the beach!

Colourful Sea World

My art is about a walk in the park but suddenly a bird swooped down in front of my face. I did not like that, the bird was too close to me for a second. The point of my piece of art is because I find it funny when the bird swoops down. My art piece shows that there is another bird and I added the other bird because when I turned to look at the side I saw another bird, so that is why I put 2 birds in my picture.
The message I intended my art piece to communicate is that anything is possible if you try hard enough, and it’s about working efficiently and not hard. My intention is to give a feeling that everything is possible and provide a feeling of limitless possibilities. The story that has led to the development of this piece of art is through school thanks to the McMichael art gallery they supplied my school with art supplies. So every Monday we have a class with the McMichael art gallery people and create art pieces. That’s the story!

I also don’t know why he attacked me when I wasn’t wearing anything black, and my mom was the one carrying something black.

I want the audience to see that you can try to get over fear and maybe you will actually get over it! You just need to try it!
The art tells people to check weather reports before going outside because you might get wet if you don’t. My grandma, brother and I went to the park and it started raining so we went home to avoid the storm. I want viewers to feel happy because I helped them have a lower chance of getting wet.

This painting is about when I went sledding with my family. This painting is important to me because I enjoy sledding and I also enjoy spending time with my family.

Painting

This is a painting of an ocean. This is important to me because I like the ocean.

This is the reasons why I like my art. First it’s very basic and which I like. Second it has animals because I really like animals. That’s why there’s lots of animals but not all of the stuff I like because I don’t like having a tea party with mice in real life. The reason why I drew all of these is because this is part of an art program and the reason the image is small is because I like to draw small stuff and it has words that describe me in the background.

Painting

This is a painting of an ocean. This is important to me because I like the ocean.

My art is to let people know that they’re good enough for people and to never let other people’s words bring you down. People should never believe in yourself like you’re nothing.

My piece is a windy day on the hills. I got inspired by a time when my family and I went outside and a tree fell down because it was very windy so that’s why I painted a tilted tree and the three hearts represent my family. Something that means a lot to me in my art piece are the math equations because I love math. I also added a basketball which represents sports because I like to be energetic. I also added different colours in the hills because I like to make my drawings realistic, cartoon or both!

What inspired me to make this art piece was when me and my mum went to Japan and saw blossom trees so I took the mixture of purple and blue to make a beautiful color and it also represents when I had eaten the freshest and most colorful peach. It was tasty and treasureful. I had so and I wanted so much more but it was just samples and I want people to think that it’s ugly but it takes time so in a bad way it’s a piece of art.

My art is about me and it is my favorite things in school which could be gym and it could be art or DPA. I want my viewer to know about me like what my favorite thing in school is and so the viewer knows about the art. I will say the story is about me. My first favorite thing in school is Gym and second is Art and my third is DPA and that is my favourite things in school.

My artwork is about my trip to Niagara Falls. I want people to feel happy and feel good and maybe just remind themselves if they go on the boat tour, to avoid the bird poop.
My painting is about when I went to America with my mom, dad and my aunt and uncle. I want people who see my painting to appreciate how amazing America is.
The message my art communicates is that happiness that comes from the fun things that you can do in Vancouver. You can eat amazing food, where some of the best tasting pizza can be found. The waterfall is a beautiful place where you can see many amazing animals like different fish and frogs. There is also a huge light show that you can go see as well. The story my art tells is that Vancouver is a nice and calm place that I went to during the winter break. The intention I want people to have when they see my art is that you should visit Vancouver.
I went to Miami and saw dolphins. I want the viewers of my art to feel jealous.
